Collapsed river bank

Kirill Serotetto, our Nenets guide from the nearby town of Yar-Sale, shows us the permafrost ice layers rate of subsidence and is almost killed by collapsing soil. In 2007 Kerill and his brother famously found a baby mammoth next to the Yuribey river. The calf is believed to have died 10,000 years ago and had been well preserved in the frozen ground until then.
